Hi!! I can't afford an iBook right now, that's why I am thinkin' in buyin' a mac mini, but I don't wanna buy a computer monitor 'cause I'll be leaving the country in about two months, so I heard somewhere that you can actually connect the mac mini into a regular tv... my question is, does this really work? I mean, are there any problems related to tv's resolution? will I be able to see all my desktops items in a regular tv as in a computer monitor? and finally, I'm moving to Europe, will my mac mini work qith european monitors/tv's?

thanks a lot!

Yes

"are there any problems related to tv's resolution?"

Depends on quality of the TV but in general most TV's will not look as good Computer monitor.

" I be able to see all my desktops items in a regular tv as in a computer monitor?"

Yes

"I'm moving to Europe, will my mac mini work qith european monitors/tv's? "

Sure as long as you can get a DVI connection or something with RCA inputs and use the optional adapter you'll be fine.

If you are near an Apple Store go on Friday the 29th the Tiger release date and buy it then. They always have a big release party and in the past you could even buy these special gift bags for about $200 that had all kinds of great stuff in them including BT keyboard & mouse, iPods and all kinds of other goodies that are worth way more then the $200 you pay for it! I heard of one guy that went when Panther was released to buy an iMac and walked out with not only his iMac but a Powerbook, Airport and an iPod for free!

Most of those gift bags have been for Store openings. I'll take one of those bags if they have them in a second! Wink
